Glad to see @protonmail mentioned in the October issue of Consumer Reports’ privacy-focused article 👍👍
When we don't protect our own privacy, we inadvertently affect the privacy of others.
Maintaining good privacy and #security practices are like a vaccine against greater damage.
You may think your Gmail account is private, but Google disagrees. Google told a judge that users have "no legitimate expectation of privacy." https://www.cnet.com/news/google-filing-says-gmail-users-have-no-expectation-of-privacy/ Proton = privacy.
How To Promote Real Social Good https://puri.sm/posts/how-to-promote-real-social-good/ - "We believe that consumers who really care about their freedom, privacy, and security, or other issues like climate change, seek out companies like ours that exist, first and foremost, to do something important that can better people’s lives." #purism
@pixelfed any idea when the next release will be tagged on Github? Thanks and keep up the great work!
I spent all day looking for vulns in a IoT clothes dryer. What did I find?
* HTTPS to talk to backend service
* XMPP w/ STARTTLS to steam events
* Cert pinning so no MitM
* Android app obfuscated w/ no obvious backend URLs or certs
* Dryer runs an AP for initial setup w/ DHCP and HTTPS servers
* That HTTPS requires auth with a password printed on a label near the door
Best I could do was get the DHCP server to serve the same IP to every request.
Well done GE.

Saddest article I've read in awhile
Location data is protected by US federal law, but AT&T has sold it anyway. Without consent. Now @eff is suing. https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/43j99g/eff-hits-atandt-with-class-action-lawsuit-for-selling-customers-location-to-bounty-hunters
